I spent the past week at North House Folk School learning the art of cedar strip construction under the watchful eye of Ken Koscik (our teacher). Ken is a master of the art.

Grand Marais is a beautiful spot, and the canoe we constructed was also a true beauty. If you are a "stripper-wannabe" and if you ever have the opportunity to go back to school, then North House is for you.

The topping of my week was taking Tom's NW Merlin for a test paddle on a small lake north of Duluth. I loved the feel of the Merlin and I will build her according to the old "rocker-less" plans.

Thanks "Woodcanoe" for everything. The strips I bought from you are now safely stowed in my garage. Beautiful stuff

I have attached a picture of my new stripper. Use your imagination and you can see her cutting through the waters....... nice lines, huh?

It was my pleasure. I'm glad you made it home OK. I enjoyed talking with you about life, the canoe, and dirt :)

Stay in touch and call or email me when you get stuck, I'll try to help.
